I'm guessing this is the event where kickboxers show that they are more exciting and skillful than boxers. Just a guess.

I'm surprised the boxers have agreed to K1 rules and didn't pull a Briggs.

the kickboxers are going to own the boxers - this may be entertaining - but not too competitive

Holm vs Eastman: maybe the best fight of this event (at least I hope so)

From www.*********.com :

***UPDATE: DiBella Entertainment has informed ********* that Jirov is not participating in K-1. Coincidentally, sources close to Ray Mercer have also expressed doubt he will fight in the June 6th event although Mercer may compete in future K-1 events.

I knew that boxers wouldn't actually go through with it.

How about the reverse, where boxing rules were applied? How many of you guys would actually pick Musashi over Jirov?

Under The Marquess of Queensbury rules Vassily would kill Musashi and 90% of the K-1 fighters.

Him and Frye both. These guys have had more fights since their "retirement match" than they've each had in the past 2 years.

Gary said in an interview he never wanted to retire to begin with. He "retired" because of his ex wife asking for more money from him. Once he "retired" she backed off rather than risk having her cash flow dry up.

Alistair Overeem got knocked out today so I think he won´t fight
